I have a lesson tonight, and hopefully Lizzie will be both sound and sane. She is intermittently slightly unsound at times, and on others she is completely sound. Sometimes the head-bob at trot (indicating something in the front legs) goes away as she warms up and works. I’m confused, and a bit worried. We’ll see how she goes…perhaps she’s stiff from all of the stall rest, and will become more sound if I can turn her out. Perhaps it’s something else and she’ll get worse. The farrier is trying long, flared-base shoes on her to encourage her collapsed heels to come right…perhaps the change to the angles of her feet are affecting her. Hmmmn.
If anyone sees Mirrormask, can you post a review? I’m dying to know how it was, but I fear I will have to wait until it comes out on DVD here (since we probably won’t travel to Edinburgh or London to see it).
Another request: has anyone used XAMPP for LAMP development? Since my spectacular unsuccess at setting up a development environment on my laptop with separate installs, I’m wondering if this might be the answer.
No profound thoughts today. The weather is grey and unfriendly, and I am unambitious. The house is a wreck, the multigym is still laying in pieces in the front room, we need to do shopping, and all I want to do is curl up in front of the fire with my latest shipment from Amazon and read until my eyes turn to raisins.
